    Both are correct, although the first one has the unnecessary word "have".

    '[Our]/[Unfortunately, our] university does not participate in any student exchange programmes so I am unable to spend a semester at your university'

    OR if you are expressing regret, when otherwise you might have been able to attend the foreign university for a semester:

    'Our university does not participate in any student exchange programmes so I am afraid I will be unable to spend a semester at your university'

    But do you know for sure that no faculty (or department) in your university participates in an exchange programme? Could this not possibly be:

    'Our faculty does not ...' (where 'faculty' covers several department, eg 'the Faculty of Languages' at a university might include French, German and Spanish departments) or 'Our department does not ...'

    OR

    'The [Name] Faculty at our university does not ..'/ The [Name] Department at our university does not ...'?

    I note you use the plural 'universities' in your sentence and if that's intended, ignore the above. But what are you trying to say here then? Do you know for a fact that no university whatsoever in your country (if that's what you mean by 'our') offers an exchange programme? If so then you could, I suppose, write:

    'Universities in Croatia do not participate in ...'

    You don't need "up". "raise" means make higher.
    When you are asking a new question, you should start a new thread with a new title.
